Easter, Sans Chocolate
So, although the title says "sans" chocolate, the family still enjoyed chocolate eggs. However I didn't have a single egg, square of chocolate or chocolate substitute. I thought I might have to make something chocolaty with dextrose to get me through the day, but I didn't get to it, and honestly didn't feel like I had to. I had made some delicious cheesy biscuits the day before, which I enjoyed with my cup of tea. I'm sorry I don't have a recipe, it was all guesstimating. I threw some butter and gluten free flour into the food processor, added some grated tasty and Parmesan cheeses, salt and paprika and some dried herbs. It made a lovely dough which I then rolled into balls and flattened with a fork.They took about 20 minutes to bake. Yum!
I'm sure a recipe could easily be found on the net.
We had a quiet day to celebrate Easter. Mike spent hours working in the garden, and I spent a couple of hours out there too. To my surprise I came face to face with a very beautiful carpet python in the garden shed. It gave me a bit of a fright, but they are so pretty, and thankfully not venomous, so best to leave it alone. I'll have to go and check if it is still there and get a photo if it is.
We didn't do much else. Some years we'll do a special lunch, but yesterday we were happy to just take it easy.
How do you celebrate Easter?
